4.14/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25

appearance- It's a rich dark brown with a half finger head that quickly goes away

smell- the smell is a refreshing mocha-coffee smell. It smells very sweet and bourbon like.

taste- you get a lot of mocha flavor in this beer. maybe a little bit of a sweet bourbon taste which i really like. The finish is a drier coffee taste which lingers for a while on the tongue and cheeks and leaves the mouth dry. I am not of fan of beer that finish in this way nor am I a fan of the way this one finished however, I am a fan of this beer.

Mouth feel is very wet and smooth. not creamy at all. this is quite a lot of carbonation, almost too much for a porter I think. I'd prefer a little less carbonation when I'm drinking a porter or stout.

Overall- This is a good beer to sit down with and have with a dinner. I might buy this beer again. definitely not a session beer. I do like this though but for some reason this beer is a little harder for me to judge.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Bought this beer on a whim. I've had it before, but the artwork always reminds me of some early 90's Cinemax movie advert (which, to be fair, they may have been going for) and keeps me from making a purchase usually. Today, it was simply the beer I've had the least experience with, and I wanted something fresh.

The appearance here is very nice. Nothing to write home about, but it fulfills the visual duty of a porter as well as can be expected. It's got a medium bodied head which quickly recedes, the color is slightly brownish black, with a tiny bit of light filtering through around the bottom edge of my tulip glass. Solid looks.

The smell could honestly be a little stronger. It's got the usual whiff of coffee and nuttiness, maybe a hint of caramel, but overall nothing stands out from the pack. It's solid, and doesn't deviate from the style in an awkward way.

Taste is good. Almost very good, but not quite there. The coffee and nuts return, maybe a bit of fruit warmth in there, and perhaps a whisper of chocolate. It's not complex, but it does express a wider spectrum of flavor than, say, the 'average' porter. It's certainly not wimpy, and there's some bitterness here to balance it out. I like it.

Mouthfeel is where this beer is basically average. It seems smooth for a second, but the carbonation activates a little too much on the tongue. The body almost feels like it's trying to lean toward IPA territory, but gets caught halfway between in a sort of limbo. It's not bad at all, but it feels like it doesn't know what it's meant to be. Merely okay.

I like this beer. I think it's a solid offering I would never turn down. I'd be quite interested to know how it tastes from the tap, in fact. However, I don't think I'd spring at the chance to purchase my next six pack. Recommended if you're into porters and like to try all that the style offers.
